Gender takes center stage at European Development Days
- Published on
If we want to eradicate poverty, we need gender equality.
This was the key message from a joint panel event at European Development Days in Brussels June 6. Changing Women’s Lives in the Rural World brought together a panel of global experts to discuss how to move beyond conventional views of gender mainstreaming in development. It was hosted by the European Commission’s Directorate General for International Cooperation and Development (DEVCO), as well as the governments of Finland, Germany, and the Netherlands.
